Do you want to watch a video of a hedgehog or guinea pig being cute and cuddly? What about reading up on honeybees or listening to some birdcalls?

I am taking time to appreciate the soothing, the informative, the beautiful, and yes, the adorable. Yes, the world is a mess and humanity is busy making it even more of a mess, but there are still good things. It is important to me to notice them.
